Workplace Application:
Supreme Court decisions trickle down, shaping law and practice not only at national but also state and local levels. 

With each ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States is permanently shaping federal employment law principles. Recent and looming Supreme Court rulings on issues ranging from class arbitration to Title VII's exhaustive requirements to sexual orientation discrimination stand to bring significant changes to the workplace. This session examines these and other key employment law decisions from the last few terms with more than just a summary of the holding. The facts of each case, the Court's rationale, the long-term implications and, most important, how the decision will affect the employer community are analyzed in an interesting and entertaining fashion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a thorough understanding of the most important labor and employment-related decisions from the highest U.S. court and what you need to do to protect your organization from legal liability.
  • Hear an analysis of how the different justices tend to "line up" on key business issues and what that tells us about the future.
  • Learn practical applications you need to implement in your workplace policies and procedures.
